Frequently Asked Questions

Can I search for files in other users private home folders?

No. If you don't have permission to open a folder, you cannot search inside it.

What files does ProFind put on my Mac?

Just the preferences files and the scripts folder.

  • (Home)/Library/Preferences/com.zeroonetwenty.ProFind.plist
  • (Home)/Library/Preferences/com.zeroonetwenty.ProFindHelper.plist
  • (Home)/Library/Application Scripts/com.zeroonetwenty.ProFind
ProFind does not keep any on disk caches of search results.

How do I offer feedback or report a bug?

Thanks! I really want feedback and bug reports. Use the contact form.

ProFind's natural language queries don't support a language I use. What can I do?

Use the contact form and ask for support for your language to be added.

Why can't I purchase from Apple's App Store?

Apple's App Store restrictions currently make it impossible for me to sell via the App Store. I hope to work with Apple so this can be changed in the future.
